Good for research, Most out of date but.
Attempting (LOL) to write a post cold war novel with my military experience. I find that IA is a great source of write info to fill in the gaps. This FM 5-31 was never issued to me in the Army but it was floating around the company. Its a clever little FM of common sense know how or things you would never find. Anyway, its an interesting military flip through FM and probably coveted by odd balls. A good research piece and a look back to a different era.
